Monday evening recruiting quick hitters
Managed to pick up a few notes over the weekend.- Howell posted a note about new offer Jerrell Boykins a little bit ago, and a Louisiana source indicated to me that the Aggies were likely the first in line on an upcoming stream of big time offers. His tape is outstanding, and tape goes a long, long way no with no eval period. It was good for A&M that they made the move early. His year at Katy Paetow and family ties to Texas means the Aggies will likely hang around on this one for a while according to my contact. - I was told by a southeast Texas source that the Aggies remain in rather consistent contact with 2022 LSU commit Bryce Anderson. If you're asking me now, I think the Tigers will have to really work to hang on to both Anderson and Bryan Allen in that class. I've been told by more than one person that Allen committed completely out of the blue. I'd bet good money that A&M stays after both safety prospects for a while.- A pair of out of state safeties in the class of 2021 spoke with Mike Elko at length last week. Beggs (OK) product Kendal Daniels has been high on A&M's board since the beginning of the cycle. He and the Aggie DC have talked rather consistently since the Aggies offered in early February. Also, Tallahassee (FL) standout Terrion Arnold is another highly rated safety prospect that is still a possibility in this class. He spoke with Elko last week, as well. While both will be tough to rip from their hometown schools (OU and Florida St), they're clearly still listening to what the Aggies are selling as we head into the summer. - Had an East Texas media source tell me there's buzz in his area that the Aggies lead for Landon Jackson. I don't believe there's anything imminent though, and this one could have some see-saws to it once the restrictions are lifted and Jackson starts to take visits again.- A Houston area source tells me that Alabama and Georgia have both turned the heat up on Atascocita TE Landen King. Based on other intel I've gathered, I'd highly suspect the Aggies to do the same this week, as well. King is rapidly moving up a lot of recruiting boards across the region. Like I said with Billy and Jason a couple of weeks ago, I could see him turning into this cycle's Wydermyer. - Lastly, don't count out Lucedale (MS) ATH MJ Daniels when talking about possibilities for A&M. The former teammate of McKinnley Jackson remains in communication with the A&M staff and has seen his stock rise recently. He's being recruited at both WR and DB, but I've heard A&M views him as a corner.

New offer: 2021 DL Jerrell Boykins, Gonzales (LA) East Ascension
Texas A&M continues to scour the country looking for top talent and today they put an offer on the table for 6-4, 285-pound defender Jerrell Boykins of Gonzales (LA) East Ascension"I felt truly blessed and I just said thank you for believing in me," Boykins said. "A strong academic and football program."He tagged defensive line coach Elijah Robinson in his tweet, and the Texas A&M coach made a strong first impression."I've only gotten to speak with him once, but from that one conversation I can tell that he is passionate about football." Boykins said.The Aggies also had a message when they spoke with him."That they believe that I will grow into a great persons not just a football player," Boykins said.It was not lost on Boykins that the Aggies were his first SEC offer. He also holds offers from Kansas, McNeese, and Southeastern Louisiana. At this time he is keeping an open mind to his options.He is originally from Louisiana but he did play his freshman season at Katy Paetow before moving back to Louisiana for his sophomore season. He has family in both Texas and Louisiana.

TexAgs National Average Rating

The TexAgs National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a TexAgs rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the TexAgs Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide TexAgs readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

TexAgs Rating

The TexAgs Recruiting team of Billy Liucci, David Sandhop, Jason Howell, Ryan Brauninger and a host of recruiting interns attends more than 75 games each fall and observes and evaluates every major Texas A&M target, as well as most of the top 150 prospects in the State of Texas. From this evaluation the team draws a rating for each prospect on a scale between 70 and 100.

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

Considered one of the best prospects in the nation and a likely difference-maker at the collegiate level. Displays all of the physical skills to be a future All-American with potential to be an early-round NFL draft pick.

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)
